Round 6 (194): Treyvon Hester, DT, Toledo
In recent news Beau Allen has an upper body injury and is projected to be out until September, so the Eagles will need another defensive tackle. Hester is a bit undersized at 6’2″ but he has a nice burst off the line and with some work he could develop into a quality rotational player.
Overview via NFL.com:
"After a junior year where he failed to make an all-conference squad for the first time in his career (34 tackles, 6.5 for loss, 2.5 sacks), Hester decided to lose 20 pounds to regain some quickness. The result was an excellent senior campaign (39 tackles, eight for loss, team-leading five sacks) that landed him on the all-MAC second team as voted on by league coaches. Hester’s redshirt freshman season got him third-team all-conference notice, as he started nine games, made 39 stops, 7.5 behind the line, and 3.5 sacks. He then earned second-team All-MAC honors as a sophomore with career highs in tackles (49), tackles for loss (9.5) and quarterback pressures (10)."
